Photographer Benjamin Von Wong is a wake up call for all of us. He literally turned his life around from a career he was not happy in and became one of the worlds most recognized pro photographers in the span of a few years.

Platinum sponsor SmugMug and Von Wong have a special relationship. Ben’s been in San Francisco numerous times doing shoots for the mega portfolio site company. Benjamin now uses them exclusively for his website. His new redesign is fantastic and took only 6 minutes to do.

Benjamin is also a Fuji X Photographer. Gold Sponsor FujiFilm has come to support Von Wong as a judge in this contest by providing a X100S Camera as a prize in the Fire Photography category.

We had the pleasure of sponsoring a meetup Benjamin had a meetup allowing other photographers to use his Mamiya Leaf Credo and Broncolor gear. We wrote a blog about it here.

From this meet up we have collaborated with other Von Wong followers and created this photoshoot as the first of a series.

The best part of Benjamin is that he shares his talents in his teachings. In the upcoming weeks you can find him working with Mamiya Camera systems and B3K Digital to produce a series of workshops.
